Point-to-point winner Rumpleteazer has shown nothing in two runs over hurdles and Volcanic Jack is plating class on the Flat. Swing Hard will be suited by this step-up in trip after staying on over 2m2f here last month while Ocean Club ran well at Perth before a very poor run on Fibresand on the Flat at Southwell. MR SATCO has a penalty to carry but was so impressive when making all over the course and distance last month on his hurdling debut that he can't be opposed.
